Made available through Xlibris, Beyond Passing follows the life of a young woman who discovers her family history and her ancestors who had taken steps to hide their past.Beyond Passing is a series of stories woven together over the span of four generations dating back to the Civil War. Told from the perspective of each generation, Beyond Passing, explores the emotional impact that “passing” had on these families and the generations that followed. Beginning at the point of discovery and looking back at the preceding generation for clues left along the way, the author discovers a world she didn’t know existed.This book appeals to the secrets that all families keep hidden in their closets. It appeals to those who wish for a better understanding of the rationale behind racial and ethnic differences and the pain that stereotyping leaves in its wake.With its central topic relevant to today’s times, Beyond Passing is a call to cherish one’s racial heritage and embrace the blending pot that has become the American theme.
